Question about 2001 Ford F150 Styleside SuperCrew

2 Answers

Sputter on low rpm

Engine is missing whenever I shift gears and the motor is revving anywhere from 1000-1800 rpm. I guess you could call it a ''sputter'' and it chokes up and then once it gets around 2000 rpm the sputtering/choke subsides and it runs smooth. I have the 6 cylinder 2001 F-150 flareside 4x4 sport.

SOURCE: 99 F250 V10 Sputtering

It takes just one of the coil on Plug units to cause sputtering and severe shaking. Fortunately the prices have dropped slightly for the coil units. The bad news is it is still close to 100 bucks from the Ford dealers. I have had to replace 3 of these on my 1999 F250 superduty V-10 since I bought it new. I believe there may be some compatible aftermarket units out there for high performance V-8 engines, but can not confirm compatibility.

To do this in park or neutral is normal. To do it while driving is not.
There are so many things that could cause this but if you have no check engine light and it runs normally up until then I would suspect you have an exhaust restriction. This can be checked fairly easy on this vehicle, it has a DPFE sensor that mounts near the top back side of the motor.It will either be black or silver,will have a 3 wire connector to it and 2 hoses going down the back of the motor to the exhaust. You can disconnect one of these hoses and install a vacuum/pressure guage and measure exhaust back pressure. It should be 1 psi or less at idle and when you go to wide open throttle should not exceed 3 to 4 psi. If it does something in exhaust,most likely one of the catalytic convertors is stopped up.

adjust your carb, the 2 screws on each side of the carb adjust so you can get the car to idle correctly, also check your distributor

My 2005 jeep grand cherokee has stopped allowing me to shift into low gear while coming down a snowy hill. I could upshift or downshift but no more. It just stays in DRIVE forcing me to use the breaks

only clue here is Drive, we drive M/t so that matters.
as does what a/t you have and if 4wd,
dont break the brakes, its dangerous. LOL
I think ( login and look) the transmission is shifted
with Tcm AND THE MANUAL lever
my guess its using the lever. right. ?
the lever moves a cable and the cable changes the trans internal mANUAL valve, if the cable is good, the valve is failing
levels at spec, using operators guide RULES> dont guess, read.
is the filter fresh, and AFT fresh
if not , may be the 50k service is NOW moment,????????

or, is engine rpm below, 800, foot off gas.
that failure causes, the A;T clutch to release.
so not looking at RPM of engine is missed critical fact.

Automatic transmission not shifting gears

post year.
if tranny slips its bad tranny. (depends on year)
if the engine misfire and has weak power that is not a tranny issues
but a engine issue., have some how knows cars tell you which is which.

if you mash the throttle and the dash RPM goes way over 3000 RPM
that is in fact a bad tranny in any gear Forward or reverse.
shaking is the engine, i guess.

do you check fluid levels on your car.
and use the operators guide for the A/T tranny levels, dont guess.
use the book it has tricky steps. read it.

good luck to you.

While in park or nuetral motor revs fine no miss but when in gear on takeoff it sputters and chokes

The reason is that the engine is under load & that changes everything,could be a lot of things.Start chececking all vacuum line connections & electrical connectors to all your sensors &actuators
